Skinny Squash Donuts are sweet baked rings of Delicata squash, with cinnamon and dusted with a confectioner’s sugar replacement. A healthy & skinny treat for the holidays, always a little jewel.
I love squash in the fall season and having a couple Delicata in the kitchen I went searching for a new healthy way with a favorite vegetable. I came across a recipe via the Nashville Edit, I still love to cook southern food. I love cooking the classics here at Bijouxs, but these simple baked rings of squash suprised me, they end up tasting close to a tender cake donut. These all vegetable donuts are grain & sugar free, all the better.
The squash is sliced in rings, seeds removed then the rings are prebaked. Then they are dipped into an egg & coconut milk mixture and coated with almond flour & cinnamon. Then baked again until tender and golden brown. I gilded the lily by dusting with a confectioners sugar replacment, or use standard confectioners sugar.
I let the donuts completely cool at room temperature. They firm up but the texture remains tender. I was surprised how delicious these little jewels were, passing them by my taste tester friends, they approved.
Enjoy these sweet little jewels Skinny Squash Donuts for the holidays.
